Overview

When an enchantress finds her life and all the secrets she guards threatened, only a Champion of Men can save her.

In ancient Ireland, the woman known as Rioghan keeps a fragile peace with the nearby settlement of Men by serving as a midwife and healer. She has met the King’s Champion, the handsome Donaill, more than once, and finds him to be one of the few to deal fairly with the Sidhe—or Little People, as the Men derisively call them.

But when some of the Men learn that Rioghan guards more than just secrets, and indeed knows the whereabouts of the Sidhe’s golden treasure, she will have to place her trust in Donaill in order to save her own people and, perhaps, find a future for herself beyond the loneliness of the forest.

    enjoyable paranormal historical romance

    In 400 CE Ireland, The King¿s Champion Donail accompanied by his soldiers visits the standing circle where the healer Rioghan allegedly lives. Donail wants Rioghan to help an ailing woman. At first she wants to refuse him because men are avaricious and would seek to steal the treasure of the Sidhe, the Little People of ancient Eire that she lives near and protects. However, Donail seems honorable. Donail wants Rioghan and begins a courtship to win her trust. However, a spell is cast on Donail that places Rioghan in a bind. If she intercedes she must do so with dark forbidden magic to save her beloved, but if she does not, he will remain lost to her and to himself forever inside the enchantment. Her friends the Sidhe plead with Rioghan to trust in the cleanest purest magic of them all love rather than giving up as THE KEEPER OF THE LIGHT for the dark side. This enjoyable paranormal historical romance acts like a roller coaster going slowly up the first incline before picking up speed. This enables the audience to better understand the heroine who is much more comfortable with Little People than she is with her own people. Donail¿s courting of Rioghan is fun to observe, but he fails to show the fire of a warrior when his beloved is threatened. Still fans of Janeen O¿Kerry or the sub-genre will rate highly KEEPER OF THE LIGHT. Harriet Klausner
